    • A record of Meningococcal Meningitis immunization within the past five (5) years
    • An acknowledgement of Meningococcal Meningitis disease risks and refusal of Meningococcal Meningitis immunizations signed by the student or, if a minor, student’s parent or guardian. The waiver can be found on page 3 of the health form.
       
  • Administration of Td/TDap toxoid within the past ten (10) years
